I had no idea that this FICA tax issue was even being debated, let alone apparently being decided in my favor. An old friend recently suggested that I look into it. I contacted my former employer and sure enough they they were on top of the situation and had filed the appropriate paperwork thus far.

IIRC in this type of case any refund of the employee's portion flows through the employer, and the employer has to make certain statements about that refund. Is this the matter addressed in the "consent" you mentioned in the OP?
